Super majority agree with Obama on climate change

Roughly two-thirds of the American people support President Obama taking significant action on climate change, according to two polls released the day after Obama's State of the Union address.

A poll for the League of Conservation voters showed that 65 percent of Americans want Obama to take "significant steps" to address climate change, including 89 percent of Democrats, 62 percent of Independents, and 38 percent of Republicans.

A second poll, conducted for the Natural Resources Defense Council, found that 65 percent of Americans see climate change as a serious problem and that 62 percent agreed with Obama's call for action. [Yale 360]
